Yes, all those assets you mention are a hedge against inflation, meaning they go up roughly at the same rate as the cost of living. If your commodities go up by 15% and that is also the inflation rate, then you are protected but got no profit. Ideally you want a higher interest in order to make your money work for you.

I don’t think there are any assets out there that grow higher than inflation apart from crypto.
